Lucifer's Litigator, by T.J. Nichols
The summer between the end of school and the start of what came next was full of sun, surf, and sex. For Will McLeod, that meant Tom, his first male lover. He knew the romance had an expiration date and would end when Tom joined the Army, but that didn’t stop Will from falling in love. To save his soul, he’ll have to fix his one regret—the love that got away.
The summer between the end of school and the start of what came next was full of sun, surf, and sex. For Will McLeod, that meant Tom, his first male lover. He knew the romance had an expiration date and would end when Tom joined the Army, but that didn’t stop Will from falling in love.
Tired of being looked down upon for being poor, Will became a lawyer—but not just any lawyer. He litigates for the gods as they gamble with the lives of those desperate enough to make deals. His job is to make sure they don’t slip free. He has more money than he knows what to do with, but he’s fast running out of soul.
Twenty-five years haven’t dimmed the candle Will holds for Tom, and when they meet again, he has a chance to put things right. Back then, Tom wasn’t ready to fight for them. Now the decorated soldier is willing to get his hands dirty, but will he be a match for the forces trying to keep them apart?
Lucifer's Litigator is a fun, but touching, story of a man who has lost everything, trying desperately to fix past mistakes before they haunt him for eternity. With beautiful scenes to reconnect Will and Tom, and some fun paranormal activity to freak you out, the book has a complex mix of all the things that make a good paranormal novel.
I nearly cried a few times. Will was so helpless, hopeless, and vulnerable. Lost and ready to give up. Tom was strong and resilient, determined, and brave in all ways bar one. Together, they were a great couple and I really bought into their relationship, both in the past and believing that the spark remained after all their years apart. I loved that they were older and wiser, now, in their forties, and life had beaten them down but not quite destroyed them and their faith in each other.
